Detroit, MI Indian Wedding by Killer Creations Photography

We're thrilled to share Mukti & Bhavik's story in today's feature on the Platinum Guide blog.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?

I met Bhavik in the midst of the COVID pandemic through Hinge. I never would’ve thought that messaging my very first Hinge match would change my life so quickly and in ways I never imagined. I was in St. Louis at the time, and met Bhavik in Chicago a few weeks later. Before our first real date, though, we had a FaceTime date and I knew then that he was someone special. When we finally met in Chicago, it felt like I was spending the evening with someone I already knew so well. I left that date knowing that he was my forever.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

In April 2022 we took our very first big trip together to the Amalfi coast! This was the first time we spent a whole week together, and we enjoyed our little escape from long distance with pasta, gelato, and limoncello spritz’s! Our second evening on the beautiful coast was when he planned a special boat “tour of the coast.” To my surprise, I walked onto a private boat and knew it was going to be a ride I’ll never forget! Bhavik got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him - an obvious and easy yes!

Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.

We knew we were planning for a big fat Indian wedding in Detroit, my hometown. This narrowed down our venue options, and ultimately we decided on MGM Grand Detroit. My family has previously had good experience with MGM Grand, and we wanted our guests to be able to enjoy the casino and what Detroit has to offer in between events.

I booked Jahura Hobby well in advance for bridal makeup - one of the best decisions I made! She is so kind, organized, and talented. She created a natural glam look for each event.

Our decor themes were surprisingly easy to decide on. We knew we needed to incorporate an Amalfi coast theme into our wedding, because it’s such a special place for us. This was the theme of our Sangeet and Utsav planners executed our vision perfectly. Our wedding has a traditional red and gold theme, and our reception was a bold black and red.

Food was a universal priority for Bhavik, myself, and our parents. We decided on Rasoi catering from New Jersey and they exceeded our expectations! At the end of our wedding, so many people mentioned how much they loved the food at each and every event.

Our wedding planner, Rajul Pillai, made sure our wedding was everything we had imagined and more! She started working with me well over 14 months in advance, and kept us on track with each detail. She helped me find solutions to each hurdle, and made sure the weekend itself went on seamlessly.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?

I always envisioned myself to be a traditional bride in a red lehenga. That’s exactly what I found when I went shopping in Mumbai.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?

Looking back, sitting on the couch and thinking about what we wanted our weekend to look like was so memorable. We spent countless evenings after work together, making little decisions and talking through things that were important to us. These evenings gave us so much quality time together, and that will always be special.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

The food, performances, and energy. We are so grateful to our friends and family for creating such a fun atmosphere and bringing endless energy to the weekend!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?

There are so many moments from the wedding week that I’ll always hold close to me, but my favorite moment was reading the card Bhavik wrote for me while I was getting ready for our wedding. Those words and emotions made me even more excited to see him that morning, and for our forever to finally begin.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?

Have fun with the planning process and soak in all of the quality time with everyone you care about. It’s the only time all of your closest and most loved people will be under one roof.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)

All of my jewelry was specially created by my mom’s friend in Ahmedabad - she truly is an artist!

My mehndi was done by Ekta Kansara. She created the most intricate designs, while we chatted for hours. Her presence is so soothing.

Let this story guide you, leaving you enchanted and dreaming of your magical celebration.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
He planned everything behind the scenes, including a photoshoot one week before the actual proposal. I expected the proposal during that photoshoot, but it was nothing more than a scheme to throw me off. The following week on the day of the actual proposal I was not expecting anything because I did not want to be thrown off again and I was so shocked when it happened. He worked with a close family friend vendor (@eventdesignbynithya IG) to set up the beautiful decor on the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge in Dallas. The decor and stunning skyline views made for an unforgettable proposal moment.

Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
We used a wedding planner (@rightoccasion) who was amazing to work with. Through the process, she became one of our close friends. I had mood boards for each of our events, and I wanted all the pieces to flow together, the decor, themes for each event, and the guest experience to be phenomenal. when it came to hair and makeup, I used @mspaintedlady, who took the time to understand what looks I liked and what would look best with my outfits for weddings & receptions. For the wedding, I went with softer colors, full glam to match my outfits, and a floral braid that had a boho spin to it. For the reception, my lengha was velvet, with geometric stone work, that had a rose sleeve. I went with a boho spin as well with a floral half updo bun to match the sleeve of my blouse, stones in my hair, Burgundy eye look, with little pops of highlighter.. For the mehendi & sangeet I had ( @fatimaashraf_beauty) she did an amazing job with my look! I wanted to do something super fun, so I made a high pony with a bold makeup look, lots of color, and a blue shadow liner. I wore hot pink for my mehendi and a cobalt blue lengha for the sangeet. they both were very fun & bedazzled outfits, so I wanted to have a fun look to go with it. the events were back to back. For the sangeet, we had a disco theme with lots of bright colors. we even danced to It the Time to Disco with all of our friends!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went to India to go shopping for my outfits!! for my wedding day look I had two different sarees and we incorporated our favorite colors, my husbands favorite color is green and mine is purple. for my reception lengha, we wanted to go with a darker color. Our venue is very luxe and elegant, and so we wanted to go with a color that would complement that. I wore a Burgundy lengha by (@amitaggaarwal), which was velvet with geometric stonework all the way down. The blouse had a rose on one side of the sleeve, which was one of my favorite elements of the look! Madhu wore a bedazzled tuxedo, which really tied our outfits together.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was working with the husband to see our vision come to life. He was very involved in the process along with me, and I can truly say we did every part of the process together. It was a lot of fun picking out all of the small details with our planner and then seeing that vision come to life.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We focused on details about some guest experiences to make the event more enjoyable for them. We ensured that the food and drinks were of the highest quality, including things such as a chai cart at the wedding and photo booths at the reception. These small details, among others, were spoken of very highly by guests during and after the events.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
When I was walking down the aisle, all of the emotions hit me at once. My husband was turned away from the aisle as per our traditions, but I could sense his anticipation. I will never forget that moment of pure happiness walking down the aisle, knowing that in just a few short moments, we would be officially husband and wife.

For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.
Our sangeet was filled with so many dances. we had a disco theme for the sangeet. We both wore shades of blue, and the decor was shades of pink with disco balls. This made our blue outfits pop even more in front of the decor. Our wedding party loved to dance, and our bridesmaids and groomsmen choreographed all the dances. we had bridesmaids' dances, groomsmen, family, and a wedding party dance that we ended with dancing to Its the Time to Disco from Kal Ho Naa Ho. My husband and I also danced to our favorite songs for the couple's dance.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Wedding planning is like the biggest group project with our favorite person. It is one of the most joyous moments to plan a wedding with the person you are going to marry. Though wedding planning comes with a lot of stress, just remember to have fun with it!

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Our cake had a modern spin; it was a geometric cake with a marble print on it!
